Eva Zeisel, noted artist/designer who created the iconic Schmoo-gourd-shaped salt and peppers as part of her Town and Country tableware line for Red Wing Pottery, has passed away at age 105. She was still working and designing, and you can see her new items on her website.

Eva Striker Zeisel (born Éva Amália Striker, November 13, 1906 – December 30, 2011) was a Hungarian-born industrial designer known for her work with ceramics, primarily from the period after she immigrated to the United States. Her forms are often abstractions of the natural world and human relationships. Work from throughout her prodigious career is included in important museum collections across the world. Zeisel declared herself a "maker of useful things".
"Eva Zeisel, Ceramic Artist and Designer, Dies at 105" . (The New York Times obituary.)
